Welcome to Think Again!, UNC-Chapel Hill’s online magazine of lifelong learning. This online publication is produced by the William and Ida Friday Center for Continuing Education and features continuing education opportunities offered by the Ackland Art Museum, General Alumni Association, NC Botanical Garden, Program in the Humanities and Human Values, the School of Nursing, and the Friday Center.
The University is offering a host of exciting enrichment opportunities this fall! The General Alumni Association is is launching a new public forum called Consider This…, a platform for the community to learn about and ponder issues of importance to our state and the nation. The Sahmat Collective: Art and Activism in India since 1989 is an exciting new exhibition that will be on display at the Ackland beginning in mid-September; make sure to check out all of the related programming that will continue all autumn long.
Make the most of the beauty of the season by attending one of the many hikes offered by the NC Botanical Garden, or by visting the twenty-fifth annual Sculpture in the Garden exhibit! If you can't get enough of nature, plan to attend The Friday Center's new series, North Carolina Literary People: Conversations with River Writers. Georgann Eubanks, author of Literary Trails of Eastern North Carolina, will moderate conversations with authors whose work has been inspired by North Carolina's rivers.
The Program in the Humanities and Human Values has a full schedule of exciting lectures and seminars this fall, including one on the History and Legacy of the Civil Rights Movement, which is offered in collaboration with the Playmakers production of The Mountaintop. Finally, the Center for Lifelong Learning at the School of Nursing has several informative events planned; especially timely is the Health Care Reform, the ACA, and You seminar, which helps health care professionals understand the impact of the Affordable Health Act on their profession and their patients
Whatever your interest, there's a program for you, so get ready to Think Again!
